How do I install WoW (Litch King) on Linux???

PLEASE someone help me with this one! I finally got around to buying the latest version of WoW but I can't get it to install. I knew I had to run it through Wine and it automatically tried to run with it anyway. But no luck! it appeared as though it tried to run but then just didn't open or crashed or both idk! I tried to go through terminal but I wasn't sure exactly what to type so I started guessing at things then getting frustrated.

PLEASE, I really want to run this ASAP today!!! So far the only suggestions I've gotten was to reinstall wine to make sure it's the latest version, download the latest version of Direct X (which I'm not sure if I can simply do that on Linux either, if so please let me know) and to DL the latest video drivers for my card. All of these are great suggestions but I don't think it's going to help INSTALL the game.

closing the original in favour of the more sensibly placed dupe.
